Stayed here for 2 nights. We didn’t know what to expect with New Plymouth and we found the whole town and surrounds to be great.
The motel is back from the town a little in a quiet spot which was nice. It is an older property. A lot of the reviews go either way with this place so we weren’t really sure how it would be. The reception was cramped and to be honest it smelt, not sure what of, but it wasn’t nice. When we went to our room all we could smell at the door was cat pee. It was very strong and unpleasant. We couldn’t leave the door open or open the windows as the smell would just come in.
Inside was 2 bedrooms which was good. Beds were comfortable, kitchen was ok. The bathroom was dated and could do with a freshen up.
After reading some more reviews while we were there we discovered that there was a cat living at the property which would account for the smell. It’s not a great thing to have your motel smelling like cats it was very off putting. If it hadn’t been for this it would have been a really relaxing place to stay.

This place was really great.
Very accommodating hosts with excellent service and very nice and helpful staff. Went above and beyond to assist us as we were coming up for a funeral. Great value for money.

The motel is in a nice quiet location.
The 2 bedroom unit has a good heat pump, full kitchen.
The shower pressure was quite weak and the parking area for our unit was a little difficult to get out of.
Overall it was a comfortable stay

Booked directly with owners, and straight of was great customer service. We are a family of 4 and found there was great space for us all and not tripping over each other. The amenities were good, free wifi is always a hit with the kids. Very clean and quiet setting. Freshly refurbished kitchen area, and a full kitchen is also a bonus. Would recommend this motel for any family visiting New Plymouth.

Lovely room. Clean tidy and good location. Thanks. We loved new Plymouth, and after our stay in auckland which was terrible, this place was a treat. Would stay again for sure. Good WiFi, nice friendly hosts. Private and comfortable beds. Keep up the good work .

Room tip: I'm sure any room would be nice.
